As always our AGM is open to all members and we would love as many members to attend as possible to show your support and so you can hear about all that we have done and plan to do as a group. Louise Ravenscroft from Family Voice will give a talk too.

We’re hoping that we might have some new trustees this year, please give it some thought, and if you’re interested get in touch.

Please can you let Laura Tilley know that you’ll be attending and whether you’d like fishcake and chips or battered sausage and chips.

On Thursday 21st March we will be celebrating World Down’s Syndrome Day, a chance for you all to raise awareness of our local group and also to raise much needed funds.

Last year two of our trustees held coffee mornings and raised over £300! Money raised for our group goes towards keeping our activities running, especially SPOT.

Down’s Syndrome International run a campaign that encourages people to wear lots of socks on the 21st March, details can be found here and if you post any photos don’t forget to tag us and #lotsofsocks.

Please get in touch and let us know if we can promote anything amongst our members and we’d love to hear what you’ve done.

Below is a link to a colouring in page, you could print, colour in and display it to raise awareness.
